(WBNG) — A former Nevada politician claims Joe Biden kissed the back of her head in 2014, and says it made her feel “uneasy, gross, and confused.”
Lucy Flores wrote about the allegations in an essay published in “The Cut,” a New York magazine.
She says it happened at a campaign event when she was the democratic nominee for lieutenant governor.
Flores also wrote she was embarrassed and shocked.
She says the conversation is in the spotlight because Biden is considering running for president.
“The reason why I felt so compelled to finally say something was because over the years as this behavior was documented as it was frankly dismissed by the media and not taken seriously, that conversation was not coming up,” said Flores.
Biden insists he does not believe he even acted inappropriately.
A Biden spokesman released a statement saying, “Neither then, nor in the years since, did he or the staff with him at the time have an inkling that Ms. Flores had been at any time uncomfortable, nor do they recall what she describes.”
